I don't have an answer for you, but I've long thought that Phish were much more in line with the Zappa sound than the GD. Phish are quirky, and they've never touched me the way the Dead does. They jam, sure, but I don't get the same emotional impact.

Phish are all real good in the technical and musical side of things.They are all MONSTER players.Way more Technical than most of the GD.HOWERVER..They are not the same.Yes they come from the same "improv is what we do" kind of thing.Phish are very very technical with rhythm patterns...5/4..7/4.Divided Sky..YEM,David Bowie.....That stuff is not easy to play.I used to see them in the early days,87,88,89 and it was the Trey solo show.I had the pleasure of seeing them back then and came to appreciate what they did.Was like YES mixed with old Genesis and Zappa.
The Gd are just plain soul.No way to really compare the 2.

It crazy that some people on this board say..Phish suck..Thats crazy man.May not be their cup of tea...but suck?mmmm

I saw Phish through BGP and a Laguna Seca Days/Daze festival during the 'Rift' era. I liked 'Rift' and the music was interesting, but didn't see how the people who looked like Deadheads could dance about twice as fast than at a GD show.

Very angular and fast. 'Maze' seemed to work but they didn't do 'Fast Enough.'
